James Isaac Moore (January 11, 1924 – January 31, 1970), better known by his stage name Slim Harpo, was an American blues musician, a leading exponent of the swamp blues style, and "one of the most commercially successful blues artists of his day". His most successful and influential recordings included "I'm a King Bee" (1957), "Rainin' in My Heart" (1961), and "Baby Scratch My Back" (1966) which reached no. 1 on the R&B chart and n. 6 on the US pop chart.

Tip on In, Pt. Blues Harmonica Masters 2003. Just a shade behind Lightnin' Slim in local popularity, Harpo played both guitar and neck-rack harmonica in a more down-home approximation of Jimmy Reed, with a few discernible, and distinctive, differences. Harpo's music was certainly more laid-back than Reed's, if such a notion was possible. But the rhythm was insistent and, overall, Harpo was more adaptable than Reed or most other bluesmen. Harpo's first record became a double-sided R&B hit, spawning numerous follow-ups on the "King Bee" theme, but even bigger was "Rainin' in My Heart," which made the Billboard Top 40 pop charts in the summer of 1961. It was another perfect distillation of Harpo's across-the-board appeal, and was immediately adapted by country, Cajun, and rock & roll musicians; anybody could play it and sound good doing it.
Born James Moore in 1924 in Lobdell, Louisiana, Slim Harpo began to record for the Crowley-based Excello label in the rnid-5Os and, except for a brief spell with Imperial Records (unreleased) in 1962, continued to record for them until his untimely death in 1969. His music was a strong influence on the '60s British blues boom. Many of his singles saw UK release on labels like Pye and Stateside
Slim Harpo's bluesy combination of R&B, pop and country found favor with such luminaries as the Rolling Stones, Them and the Kinks, all of whom covered Harpo originals at some point in their careers. With gems like "I'm A King Bee," "Raining In My Heart" and "Te Ni Nee Ni Nu," The Best Of Slim Harpo ably scratches the surface of the Louisiana bluesman's catalog.
